VISITORS who have received exceptional service from a local tourism business are being encouraged to nominate them for a top accolade at this year’s Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards.
The People’s Choice Award at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards is open to any tourism business in the region, including Liverpool, Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.
Voters are being asked to nominate worthy businesses ahead of the April 1st deadline.
The winner of the People’s Choice award, along with 16 other tourism categories, will be announced at a glamourous black-tie event at St George’s Hall on May 19th in Liverpool.
Peter Sandman, Head of Visitor Economy Development at Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people to vote for businesses that have gone above and beyond over the past 12 months.
“Exceptional service is commonplace across the Liverpool City Region’s tourism industry and this is a chance to ensure businesses are recognised on a regional platform.”
Victoria McDermott, Marketing Manager at Cavern City Tours, recipient of last year’s award, said: “We were so proud to be the winners of The People’s Choice award at Liverpool City Region Tourism awards 2015.
“The fact that it was voted for by the public makes it really special. It is testimony to all the Cavern staff who work hard and with passion to make sure our visitors have a great experience.”
